Unfortunately, HostMonster does not have an uptime guarantee, which can be frustrating when they don’t match industry standards. Furthermore, people have complained about slow page loading at times. Lastly, one of the main complaints is about misleading prices. While they offer cheap prices at first glance, note that you will be charged for some things you might not be expecting. This includes backups, cancellation fees, and many of the prices advertised are only given if you’re willing to commit to a long period of time, such as 3 years.
